i've heard that keeping your house at 68-70 all day long is often cheaper then turning the heat down only to turn it back up every night. does anyone have data or first hand experience on this? my heating bill is ridiculous right now.

anyone know if this model or the non-wifi model have a locking feature for controls? I always wonder if nanny is changing temperature while im at work.
You can lock the face plate from making changes. We do this currently so the kids don't change the temperature upstairs. It is not hard to unlock from the face plate but even I forget how to do it and have to look at the manual. Also, like mentioned you can monitor from your phone while at work.

This is a great deal. Wish the girlfriend would have been on board, but apparently I can't use my Xmas gift card on this until I install a $200 shower faucet.

@Karrun - In your reply, I think you left out the most important part of his original quote... "So that I can check to make sure pipes haven't frozen." I live in FL, so I'd never have this concern, but I've read about issues from people up North (I think on 1st Gen Nest, probably fixed w/ update now), where a thermostat did not reboot correctly, and caused big problems. (link: http://www.amazon.com/review/R291...GE6J77VRPI)
I had edited my prior post to clarify the issue, so Karrun might not have seen that I was concerned about pipe freezing. (I actually shut off the main water inlet if I'm travelling during the winter, so extensive water damage doesn't occur. But expensive pipe damage can still occur, with some water damage once the water inlet gets turned back on.)

The Nest review you cited is exactly the kind of issue I'm talking about.

Got 2, need 3 but will skip the attic. Can always return to HD if I dont like it.

Any promotion codes to make the deal sweeter?

So other than the ability to remotely operate, is there any advantage to replacing current old gen thermostat with this?

Just trying to figure out if it is just a convenience thing or there are other factors. I know it reminds Air filter change etc., but that I manage by an a to do note on my phone

The Nest has learning features that I don't think this has but this is WAY cheaper. The Nest is still a little overpriced.
The Honeywell wifi 7day learning thermostat is what I'm waiting for to be on special. I've had bad luck with older Filtrete models... then I switch to Honeywell.

Gotcha, sorry Karrun.

Ordered one based on the fantastic Amazon reviews [amazon.com]

Has most of the features of the Nest without the $250 price tag and the questionable "learning" capabilities

Anyone know how this compares to the Nest?
The Nest is probably not a practical comparison.
Does anyone have any experience with this versus the Ecobee Smart SI thermostat?

My heat is set for 65 in the mornings and 60 all day long... my power bill runs around $78 dollars in the winter... but I have gas heat to go with my central... my gas bill usually runs another $32. I'm hot natured...

It might be true if your house spends more time in the "high" temperature than the "low" temperature, but that is not recommended if you want to save money. Most people program them so that both during the day when at work, and during the night when asleep, the temp is down (when in heating mode) so that its only really working for an hour or so in the morning and 3-4 hours at night. The rest of the day (the other 19 hours) it should be maintaining a lower temp, and that will save you money. People who try to "Debunk" energy savings typically have an agenda (and a gun rack in their truck). Ask them for proof.

Here is a great article (with references): http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog...ave-money/

Thanks. I have a somewhat modern (<10 year old) programmable thermostat, so I guess I am good to go.
Ha, yeah me too and once it is programmed I never touch it. I can't think of too many reasons I would need to have it on wi-fi remote control. Although, it would be pretty funny to mess with my wife by turning the heat down remotely when I'm not home. Smilie

Wow, that would be nice. Here, we end up paying around $20 a month just for "hookup" fees and taxes! Sometimes these fees are almost is much as the actual Gas Charges! When I asked the gas company why
these fees were so high, they told me the fees are the only way the company makes money and not on the actual gas charges themselves.

Nest is much better as its a learning thermostat and knows when you are home and when you are not so it will save energy by letting your temp go lower when you are not home... I bought a open box nest at lowes for 80 dollars... best 80 dollars I have ever spent.. Took 15 mins to install.... tech support is also great....
i don't personally consider that one feature equates to 'much better' but i realize that's a personal preference. unless there's other tangible features/performance that you didn't list?
